I am currently an assistant research professor in the philosophy department of the University of Connecticut. I received my PhD from the University of Sheffield in 2018. Prior to that, I received a BA in philosophy (also from Sheffield; 2013) and an MPhil in international development (from the University of Cambridge; 2014).
The main focus of my research is in epistemology. I am interested in how our epistemic practices and capacities affect our lives as social, political, and moral agents, and vice versa. In this connection, I have written on topics including the epistemology of taboo, the nature of intellectual vice, epistemic paternalism, snobbery, and both intellectual and moral virtue. I am also interested in related areas of both ethics and feminist philosophy.
Much of my teaching is in epistemology and ethics. In 2019-20 I am teaching an upper level course on self-knowledge and ignorance, and an intro course on normative and applied ethics.
